At a public hearing on three bills in Abuja by the committees on women and social development, youth and telecommunications, stakeholders supported the establishment of the council.

The chairman of the women affairs and social development committee, Stella Ngwu (PDP, Enugu), said the bill would also establish a fund for the council in which money approved by the federal government would be paid for the administration and activities of the council.
